Cooking at home is central for us….and try as we may sometimes we have a “mishap” in the kitchen. While breaking some noodles over a pot of boiling water, my hands slipped and the boiling water flew over and straight on my left forearm. I stood there in shock that it just happened! The burn site was very evident and swollen. It was like my brain just shut off for those brief moments, till the pain of the burn started to penetrate my body. I quickly ran to the sink and put my arm under cold running water. While I was trying not to freak out and worry about the level of burn I just received, I had the memory of sitting in a class with the Redmond Clay man teaching about the all the benefits to this amazing clay…including how good it is for burns. So I thought this would be a great opportunity to see if Redmond Clay really helps with burns.
I mixed 2 spoonfuls of Redmond Clay into some water, until it was a mud consistency. I slathered a thick amount of the clay straight on the burn site and then applied cellophane wrap over to keep it moist. I noticed how quickly the pain started to feel soothed and so much better (my forearm had a definite 2 degree and possibly a 3 degree burn). I left it this way for the rest of the night and then rinsed of the clay before bed. I was SHOCKED at how much the clay helped! Seriously amazing!! I am now a true believer in Redmond Clay for burns!
Here are our Top 5 Reasons why Redmond Clay is a MUST in our homes…
#5 We already knew it helps us when we have an exposure to gluten. We mix a spoon full of Redmond Clay into some hot water and drink it like a hot tea. Honestly it’s not that bad tasting…it’s earthy. 😉 We also use it if we have the stomach flu, food poisoning, or any other tummy troubles.
#4 But if you don’t think that sounds appetizing, they make it in capsule form for easy swallowing. The capsule form makes it super easy to take when traveling. Put a few in a snack size baggie and you are good to go if any stomach issues arise!
#3 Great for bee stings! Mix a little clay with water (or buy the “First Aid” bottle where it’s already mixed for you) and apply over the sting site. The clay is amazing with pulling out the poison from a bee sting.
#2 Helps with misquote bites. We live out in the country and so misquotes are everywhere. Applying a thin layer of clay over bite areas helps relieve the constant itches from them buggers!
#1 And now we know we can use it on burns!
